A lovely Church and well worth a visit. Impeccably kept grounds and great building right in town so easy to get to.
This is a lovely church, called the Cathedral of the Isles because it is huge and beautifully ornate. When you walk in there is the lovely smell of beeswax in the air. Lovely flowers and a feeling of peace. nice to just sit quietly and contemplate.
We visited at Easer and found the congregation to be warm and friendly.The Church of St Anne's is well maintained, large and impressive given the size of the Island. We were invited to ring the bells for the Service which was a great experience. The bells have since been removed for renovation however they are soon to be rehung in... More
St Anne's Church is beautiful and mum & I attended the Holy Communion Service. We were made very welcome, but the order of service is confusing for visitors. ( I am a regular church goer, but we were given 2 hymn books, a service sheet and booklet, the vicar did try to explain the service but it was over complicated... More
OK, I should have thought it through as it wasn't the warmest night out, but inside it was freezing. The music was very interesting and the church provides the best acoustics on the Island, as well as a magnificent ambience to listen to such music. As these days most of our visits are for funerals, it was an added pleasure... More
For a small town on a small island, this is a remarkably big church. There were some interesting stained glass windows, and there were a lot of very lovely flower displays. Whilst it is always interesting to see local churches and local dignitaries, this church was otherwise fairly plain and unremarkable,
An oasis of peace in the little town of St Annes. Friendly, traditional and open to visitors. It's the only parish church in Alderney and well worth a visit while you are on the Island.
We just dropped in for a few minutes but really liked this simple little church. I was visiting the indie author Rachel Abbott (Only the Innocent & The Back Road) who lives on Alderney. We were helped by the very pleasant priest and listened to the organ tuner for a few minutes. A charming little church in a charming town.
